I've been using WD-40, which works...sorta, kinda, maybe, a little.

Parking: Swing wide, so the corner of your car is really close to the car in the next space, then swing inward again. (I ought to draw a picture...) Instead of trying to head directly in to the space, you head "across" the space, to the far side. When you straighten out from this, you're in the center of the space, and aligned with it.
That's going to depend on the the turning ratio of your car, the length of your car, and whether the spots are angled. Try that with my Buick and straight in (90 degree) spots and you're hitting the car in the next space unless you stop and back up a bit.
